In one life itself, says Sri Krishna. The Seeker through wisdom endeavours. In this manner, by acquiring spiritual experience and through the gains acquired after many lives, be goes to the Supreme Goal. By intense receptivity the seeker becomes endowed with devotion to Sri Vishnu. Knowing, meditating and similarly perceiving after many lives, the person specially attains the Divine Sriman Narayana; not in any other manner, thus in Narada Puraana.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- Even the seeker of the process of deliverance (is superior to) the one who merely studies the Vedas. What then is the special need of knowing about being established? Thus, in Parama Yoga scripture.
46 - 47. The man of equanimity is greater than the man of austere ; he is considered superior even to the man of wisdom; he is superior even to the performer of rituals. Therefore, you do become the man of equanimity.Of all the men of equanimity he, whose self abides in Me being fully receptive and worships Me, I consider him to be truly in communion with Me.
Bhashya :- ज्ञानिभ्य: means the knowers of equanimous state. तपस्विभ्य: means the austere ones and performers of rituals.
